No Holds Barred

RLJ Entertainment's new Blu-ray for No Holds Barred begins with what seems like dozens of trailers for movies starring pro wrestlers from the WWE talent pool. Each flick went direct to home video, but once upon a time — aka 1989 — one had to go to the multiplex to catch such a spectacle.

Knights of Badassdom

In 2008, the third act of the guy comedy Role Models used LARPing — live-action role-playing, that is — as a backdrop for our protagonists' lessons learned. Today, Knights of Badassdom extends that half-hour into a full feature, to the point where viewers are left not smiling, but exhausted.

Switched on

Not everything on television has to appeal to mass audiences. In fact, with the further fractioning of viewership thanks to alternatives like Netflix and VOD, more series can afford to become more niche. Here are five examples of shows both past and present — and new to DVD and/or Blu-ray — that encompass some of the more outrageous ideas ever to go beyond boardroom discussion.

Get ‘Fresh’

And did somebody say ‘free burritos’?

By Rod Lott December 7th, 2011

What are you doing tonight? I know it’s short notice, but how about a movie complete with free burritos from Chipotle?

At 6:30 p.m. at Convergence, 1755 N.W. 16th in the Plaza District, a screening of the documentary film “Fresh” will be held. A suggestion donation of $5 is all you need to get in, and that benefits Urban Harvest, a sustainable gardening program of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.

Directed by Ana Sofia Joanes, “Fresh” is, per its website, “more than a movie, it’s a gateway to action.” It celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing the food system by forging healthier, sustainable alternatives.

To that end, those aforementioned Chipotle burritos will be filled with sustainable and naturally raised ingredients.
